DIY Casual T-Shirt Dress + Pinterest Inspired


Hi Darlings,

Can you tell that I am currently obsessed with this shade of blue? I bought so much fabric this color without realizing it and now I have a ton of blue to sew up, lol!

I came across a pic on pinterest of a t-shirt dress I thought was awesome and looked comfy, so I took some blue knit jersey and made my version of it. I used some of the process I show in my T-Shirt Maxi Tutorial. It was fast and easy and I will be making it in many colors for fall. The great thing about this dress is that I can easily make it with long sleeves or wear it under jackets and with boots. I may do a step by step tutorial for this because the gathering, fit and sleeve drafting are worth showing.

  26. if you do a tutorial can you show how to do the longer sleeves as well. you do such great work. I started using your tutorial for the pencil skirt, but i cannot get the seam straight to save my life. i start and it seems the fabric moves so its crooked... i guess i just need to practice more, huh?
